HOUSTON (AP) — Wilson Ramos hit two home runs and Renato Núñez and rookie Akil Baddoo each homered for the second straight game as the Detroit Tigers slugged their way to an 8-2 win over the Houston Astros.

Baddoo is off to a scorching start to his major league career and has four home runs in just eight games.

Nomar Mazara also homered to give the Tigers a season-high five homers as they won their second straight game following a four-game skid.

Detroit manager A.J. Hinch secured a rare series win for the Tigers in Houston by winning the first two of three games against his former team.
